Ate in Banyi on Saturday afternoon into evening, the food was really tasty, beautiful presentation and lots of nice flavours. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. The decor was nice and the atmosphere relaxed. Id recommend a visit!
There was a mix up with our booking but the manager played a blinder. The is always of a very high standard and so is the service. This is a place I will go back to regularly.

We were given a voucher for this restaurant and I have to say it didn't disappoint. The food was good, staff were pleasant and efficient. It was quite busy, probably because it's beside Temple Bar, there seemed to be a lot of tourists. Worth a try.

Lovely restaurant with great food. Was very pleasantly surprised overall. Service was attentive and staff were very friendly and polite. We felt a little rushed towards the end but it was a busy Friday evening.

OMG is all I can really say about this place! I had been once before, a long time ago and I'd forgotten how good it was. The food is amazing and sooooooooo fresh, I'd go so far as to say that it's probably the best sushi I've ever had. We ordered mostly sushi rolls and some nigiri, there's so much to choose from. My friend is coeliac and they had the gluten free soya sauce for her. They were also very good at advising which sushi rolls were GF and which ones weren't. The service was excellent, the girls were extremely friendly and helpful. I cannot fault this restaurant, it's a gem, check it out!

This was my first visit to Banyi Japanese Dining and we were very impressed. From the min we arrived until we left it was a great experience. The food is just divine and so well presented. First time there but it definitely wont be our last.

It was my first time in Banyi and my expectations were high based on reviews I had read. First impressions were good, we had an excellent greeting which flowed through to the friendly and efficient service throughout. We had a four course meal, which was excellent value and included a cocktail. Highlights for me were the gyoza and crispy tofu starters, the lowlight perhaps the fish cake croquettes which were a tad overdone and dense. The Matcha fondant with red bean ice-cream was a new one for me, I've had the chocolate version many times so was interested to see how this would compare. It was cooked perfectly and the ice cream was a great match - yum. I would recommend a vist
